Wow, they brought this sketch back two years later!!! It must be a coincidence that Ludacris was in this episode too, because he's not in this skit (I'd think if he was the one pushing for this skit then he would have asked to be in it too).

This would be our third Blizzard Man skit with Andy Samberg. The first was also with Ludacris. Ludacris liked this character so much that he and Andy did this bit for a fundraiser as well. How can this still be funny when Andy always does the same thing. Tim's character is pretty funny, a nice mix. I love the spaced out look!!! Andy's still got it!

Rahm Emmanuel

Obama Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel, introduces himself...

Was this skit on SNL this week?



Overall: Was the Rahm Emmanuel skit on this week? Overall, a good showing for Andy Samberg, so they probably skipped a Digital Short. I notice that they often skip the Andy Samberg digital short when Andy's prominent in other skits (they can't make it the Andy show). So hopefully we'll get a solid digital short in the next episode. We want to see another music video, and none of this week Daquiri Girl or Rasta Man stuff. Make fun of a pop star, rap star, or pop/rap video!!!

It was great to see Blizzard Man back, and they made the skit nice and fresh. Andy's Rahm bit was hilarious. I hope to see him bring Rahm back in the future. It's good to see Andy do a political impression that could be a recurring character.

Same, yo. It's like the only skit not on there and that s**t is just hilarious. It must be a comedy of errors.

Ed Price said...

Ah, Bobby Moynihan's Sticky Bar sketch. Have you seen his first one, the Pepper sketch? (It's the first Unos/Mark Payne sketch; this is the second.)

We've got that one on along with all the Bobby Moynihan videos. NBC hasn't released the Sticky Bar sketch.

Still waiting for the Sticky Bar sketch. Would love to see it again.

I can't find the Sticky Bar Sketch ANYWHERE! I've tried looking on basically any website, and all I've found was the transcripts to the show. :/

It's been months and the world is STILL waiting for the Sticky Bar sketch to be free!!! This is so wrong.

Ed Price said...


Agreed. It's also sad that Bobby tried his Mark Payne character twice more and those never made it.

Very disappointed that Sticky Bar is STILL not up ANYWHERE!! Way to go NBC. They've got the episode up on Netflix but there is no sound that goes with it. :( :(

As a waiter I really wanted Mark Payne to be a regular feature... I WANT STICKY BAR! said...

This won't truly have success, I think this way.
